This briefing paper provides a summary of a project to strengthen and broaden the impact in national policy and local practice from the BIOPICCC toolkit and associated learning. The BIOPICCC project ran from November 2009 until October 2012 and aimed to develop a methodology for selecting locally sensitive, efficient adaptation strategies during the period up to 2050 to ensure that the infrastructures and health and social care systems supporting wellbeing of older people (i.e. those aged 65 and over) will be sufficiently resilient to withstand harmful impacts of climate change. A key output from BIOPICCC was a toolkit that provides a series of resources to assist local authorities, partner organisations, and neighbourhood and community groups with local level resilience planning. This briefing focuses in particular on the following key objectives of the project: sharing learning; leveraging good practice citations to promote and increase the use of the toolkit; ensuring the toolkit remains fit for purpose; and disseminating knowledge and learning.
